The reception team were very helpful and were able to book activities for our three day stay. We made good use of the mountain bike hire (hour/half day/day). SAMREC, local mall, beachfront bars and the casino complex... More

The place is excellent,the dorms are comfortable, clean and sleeps only 4 people and has enough space for luggage. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Of special mention Eve knows a lot about things to do in PE and good places to stay in SA, she is always smiling and available to help.

Enjoyed our stay at this place, the staff is wonderful comfortable beds and clean communal areas. The pool is huge and there is an enclosed braai area which is good in case it rains. The only downside is that the jacuzzi was broken. We definately recommend
